The Martin House + Tour will take you to all the spaces included on the Martin House Tour, plus the intimate, light and art-glass filled Bursar’s Office and the second floor Master Bedroom. The tour will also visit the first floor of the Gardener’s Cottage (1909) where you will see Wright’s concept for affordable housing beautifully executed and the first and second floor of the Barton House (1903) which was the first Prairie house built on the site. Along the way your docent will expand on the Martin/Wright story to provide a more detailed context for this architectural masterpiece.
This tour is two-hours and is not wheelchair accessible: there is considerable walking, standing and stair-climbing involved. Part of the tour is outside. From time to a time a specific tour space in the Martin House may be unavailable due to ongoing restoration. An alternate space will be made available.
